The Great Transformation. Civic Coin Design in the Second Century BC

In this paper I suggest that there was a paradigm shift in Greek coinage in the second century BC. In contrast to Rome at the same time, this did not manifest itself in the form of the iconographic preoccupations of individuals or families, but rather in a new view of communal identity, which may be witnessed in other aspects of civic behaviour in the same period.
